Founded in 2008 by Oliver Knight & Rory McGrath, the studio is a collaborative practice engaged in ongoing partnerships with artists, curators, editors, architects, designers and institutions.
Recent commissions include the exhibition design and campaign for Fear and Love (Design Museum), visual identities for Manus × Machina (The Met, New York), the British Pavilion in Venice, and Under the Same Sun (Guggenheim, New York) as well as book projects with artists Fos and Shezad Dawood. Our ongoing collaboration with the REAL Foundation continues with the creative direction of REAL Review now in its second issue. Between 2011–15 the studio was responsible for the visual identity and creative direction of the Strelka Institute.
For us, design is a conversation. Our art direction aims to engage clients and collaborators in a process that not only communicates who they are but clarifies what they are. Whether it’s a book or a visual identity, our designs seek to reflect a set of core values. This way of working often leads to ongoing relationships that track the evolution of a brand or body of work.
